I think if I received an engagement ring like that, I would actually pretty touched.
True, it is not my idea of an engagement ring (I'd prefer something like Queen Elizabeth's or Crown Princess Victoria's rings), however, the thought behind the ring is what would matter to me. Joachim deliberately chose a ring that symbolised his bride's roots and country of origin.

However stunning the ring, at the end of the day it's better to receive a modest but thoughtful ring, than a trophy, statement piece with no emotions behind it.

Thanks, I think they're part of the decoration on the dress. I like her delicate earrings.

Those diamond drops are gorgeous and it looks like the decorative pieces on the gown slip over a rope-like attachment. You can see how the top ones curve down. Whether they came with the dress, are costume jewelry or the real thing is the question. Thank you for the closeup, Salma!

Because IMO not only is it Ugly but it's boring it's not an eterinty ring it's just something one would slip on for daytime when nothing else came to mind.
So for me I hope it's the first option.
I think I remember reading, that Joachim designed it himself?

The World’s First All-Diamond Ring Looks Like Rock Candy - Socialite Life

Maybe she should swap it out for this one. 150 carat solid diamond ring, that should be enough bling for anyone.

Yes she did, many times. Mary has similar piece given her by P Henrik, so maybe this on is also gift from him to Marie.
Here is slightly better view of this diamond brooch

As agami.pearl noted, Marie has worn it quite a few times. Apart from South Korea reception in May of 2011, she also wore it during the week-long visit to Japan a month earlier (the picture is not very clear, but it's definitely the same brooch).

Mary's brooch was an engagement present from Prince Henrik.
She has worn it both as a brooch and as a hair ornament.
